On Stepfatherhood: The Emperor Strikes Back

My wife has talked me down from writing another nasty letter to my step-son’s father. Al obviously had another sit down brainwash session with AJ this weekend (which is really quite industrious of the jerk-wad, since his son was only with him for a few hours)....

Incredibly Angry

People won’t leave my damn car alone. I’ve never had my car broken into before last year when my radio was stolen and my windows and dashboard were destroyed. Yesterday someone broke into my car again, and destroyed part of the engine taking out the...

On Stepfatherhood: Reloaded

I just wanted to take a second and thank all of you for the loads of letters and IMs I’ve recieved in response to my post about AJ’s father, Al. I appreciate it, and your words were very encouraging. The comments ranged from the Star Wars-esque...

A Lot of Interesting Tech Stuff

There’s just a ton of stuff I want to talk about and do with the blog lately and just don’t have the time resources to do it. Spotplex looks cool, but I can’t get them to issue me my code for my blog widget. P2P banking is here, and I want to talk...

On Stepfatherhood

I don’t often make direct references to my personal life, but the events of last weekend and this morning, I believe, compel me to at least journal my thoughts on the topic. As most of you know, I’m recently married (and still loving it completely,...

Hey Folks…

Sorry I’m not super talkative today. I’m waist-deep in RAMP programming. You’ll hear more from me on Monday. Have a good weekend. /rizzn UPDATE: Before I go, I need to share this with you. Try to overlook the fact that it promotes Al Gore’s...

Jacob Li Hopkins: More Baby Pictures

In my continuing effort to inform the entire world that I have a son on the way, here are even more pictures of my unborn child… this time, an entire gallery of them. In this collection you can actually see his face, and his profile. I did a little bit of...

Announcing: Jacob Li Hopkins

Well, folks: for those of you who knew already that my wife was expecting, you knew this day would come – the day where I turn the widely lauded website of Rizzn.com into my personal baby album. That day has arrived. This morning, we found out that my wife Iris...

A Relatively Uneventful Day

This morning, after Iris left for work at Birthway, a good long lost buddy of mine named Matthew Finkelstein called. Hadn’t heard from a Finkelstein in a while, so it was good to get the update. He called on his way back to the airport after having visited Joel...

Busy Week, Busy Day

My week has been nothing but me running around, but somewhere in the middle of it, I’ve gotten a fair amount of work done. My Dad gets married tomorrow. It sort of sounds weird saying that. My parents split up a couple years ago and personally, I didn’t...

Nominally Interesting Day

I’ve had a nominally interesting day today. This morning was eventful. Instead of rolling out of bed at my usual 10:00 or so, I was awoken by a phone call from the adoption agency down the street. Its an organisation called BirthWay, and they offer free...

A Better Ending than its Beginning

Today ended a lot better than it began. I spent the bulk of the day in meetings. I started out at 5Tribe, giving them advice on a number of fronts, ranging from ad copy, to internet marketing tips, from our potential PoddedMeat revival to reviving the polling system I...

What I'm Working On

I’ll be brief – my step-son’s father is coming in an hour or so to come and pick him up, so I need to head on home. Here’s what you can look forward to in the next few days here at Rizzn.com: Some re-vitalisation over at ModernOpinion.com...
